Currently we are using 17.8 licensed version of Aspose Slides Java. How to acheive below functionality using aspose slides

In microsoft powerpoint 10 we achieve it by following below steps :
Click Format tab -> Select Align -> Distribute vertically / Distribute horizontally

This we want for aligning the multiple shapes in one line.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as SLIDESJAVA-36990) have been fixed in this update.


In Aspose.Slides for Java 20.5, we have introduced the support where by you can now align the shapes inside vertically or horizontally as per your requirements. In the following example, I have demonstrated the use of the feature. All you need to do is to select the desired shapes on slide and can align them from top, bottom , left and right.

Presentation pres = new Presentation("example.pptx");
try {
    ISlide slide = pres.getSlides().get_Item(0);
    IShape shape1 = slide.getShapes().get_Item(1);
    IShape shape2 = slide.getShapes().get_Item(2);
    IShape shape3 = slide.getShapes().get_Item(4);
    SlideUtil.alignShapes(ShapesAlignmentType.AlignTop, true, pres.getSlides().get_Item(0), new int[]
} finally {
    if (pres != null) pres.dispose();
